Who Needs Optimal Detox

What is detoxification? It is the normal process of metabolizing harmful compounds into less harmful ones and excreting them from the body.

There are chemicals found in our air, water, and food that may cause harm to our bodies tissues and organ systems. Our lungs, digestive system, and immune cells are often the first areas to encounter toxins and are the most susceptible for initial damage from them.

The body’s detoxification process is vital for a healthy immune system and digestive system. In order for your body to properly detox, it needs functioning elimination routes of the liver and digestive system. This is because toxins are most commonly processed in the liver and excreted in the bile which travels through the digestive system.

If this process is not working well, the level of toxins in the body rises. The build up of heavy metals, and waste products all contribute to oxidative stress and potentially cell damage. When under oxidative stress, it may be necessary to support cell function with adequate sleep and a healthy diet. In fact, the process of detoxification improves with adequate sleep and a balanced diet. If you are not getting both, your system may benefit from nutrient support.

You’ve likely heard of detox diets to help support healthy weight, and the elimination of toxins. In addition to the body’s natural detoxification process, further support of this through natural detoxification nutrient support is key. But how do you find the right natural detox nutrients to support you? The first step is to choose a well-designed and formulated product designed by an expert in the field.

Optimal Detox is an extremely comprehensive formula designed by Natural Medicine expert Dr. Ben Lynch ND, to support gastrointestinal (GI) function, balanced detoxification, and a normal, healthy response to inflammation.

Packed full of protein, vitamins, minerals, added amino acids, and selectively chosen plant compounds that support normal detoxification, Optimal Detox is vegan, free from GMOs, gluten, and other common allergens or harsh fillers. These all contribute toward supporting optimal natural detoxification. The wide variety of nutrients are inside of an optimally-absorbed, vegan protein powder base.

Optimal Detox utilizes patented, powerful antioxidant ingredients to support your cells with the onslaught of exposure that happens day in and day out. All natural nutrients to help support the body’s natural detoxification process.

Proper detoxification offers many health benefits. Optimal Detox may help support the following:

  • Normal liver detoxification
  • Fatty acid production
  • Healthy elimination and neutralization of toxins
  • Immune system function

Chosen nutrients support both your CYP1A enzymes/phase I enzymes as well as your phase II liver detox enzymes. Those are the very same enzymes that support the normal biotransformation and the binding of toxins, via the glucuronidation pathway, sulfation pathway, and glutathione conjugation process. All of these contribute to the further elimination of certain toxins and gut health.

This naturally flavored vanilla powder is the perfect addition to support your elimination diet or detoxification protocol. See why many are choosing Optimal Detox to support your body's detoxification pathway today.

Key Ingredients In Optimal Detox

  • Vegan Protein Base: Sourced from pea and rice protein, this provides a full amino acid profile to support optimal growth and development of tissues.
  • Preventium®, MSM, and sodium sulfate: Supports glucuronidation and sulfation in the liver for proper breakdown of toxins.
  • MeadowPure®: An organic stabilized flaxseed complex which provides omega fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidant support.
  • Ellagic acid (from pomegranate extract), Watercress, and Green Tea: These powerful nutrients all support CYP1A enzyme, phase I and II of liver detoxification, and healthy detoxification.
  • Ginger and Curcumin: Powerful herbs that support healthy inflammatory processes and detoxification.

Why Optimal Detox Works

Your body’s main detoxification organ is the liver. It first breaks down toxins, then excretes them through bile (to intestines) or urine (kidneys). Bile is stored in your gallbladder and flows into the small intestine for elimination. Ensuring optimal strength of your intestinal lining is important for proper elimination.

So how does detoxification actually work in the body? Detoxification works through three primary pathways:

  • Transformation
  • Conjugation
  • Elimination

Transformation (Phase I Detox)

When a toxin is being detoxed by the body, it often needs to change shape before it can be eliminated. There are a series of enzymes that carry out this process. While there are more possible steps, most consider detoxification as taking place in two primary phases. Simply put: Phase one activates toxins. Phase places compounds on the toxins that make them water soluble are ready to be eliminated from the body. The most common phase one enzymes are the CYP450 or the cytochrome P450 monooxygenase family. These enzymes primarily add a hydroxyl group to fat soluble toxins. This prepares the toxin to interact with other compounds that will assist in making it more water soluble. Once the hydroxyl group is attached, other detoxification compounds can mate with or “conjugate” to that group. Conjugation enzymes facilitate the binding of specific compounds onto the hydroxyl “handle”. This allows it to travel out of the body via sweat, urine, or feces (via the bile). Conjugation nutrients include sulfate, glucuronide, glutathione, methyl groups, glycine, and taurine.

Conjugation (Phase II Detox)

Conjugation facilitates the joining of the hydroxyl group with another chemical group that makes the compound water soluble. This enables it to be more easily excreted from the body. It takes a lot of energy and nutrients to carry out this detoxification process. This requires adequate vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. In addition, enzymes in the detoxification process require amino acids in order to be created. Sulfation is the most common conjugation reaction for detoxification. This requires a constant supply of sulfate groups. These can come for food or supplemented nutrients including MSM and Sodium Sulfate Anhydrous. Glucuronidation is the second most common conjugation reaction for detoxification. This is where a family of enzymes place a glucuronide onto the hydroxy group that is attached to the toxin. These uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferases (UGT) enzymes are upregulated by Watercress. Preventium® glucurate and potassium d-glucurate are added in Optimal Detox to supply additional glucuratein the intestines to build more glucuronide. This is often necessary as bacteria will produce enzymes that break apart glucuronide that are bound to toxins. Glutathione production, use, and recycling along with methylation support are all covered by the inclusion of betaine, choline, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, Folate, NAC, and Selenium.

Elimination (Phase III Detox)

Detoxification is the process of the transformation and elimination of harmful and potentially harmful compounds. We discussed the first two phases of proper detoxification above. The third phase is the simple process of elimination. Toxins most often get eliminated through the liver via the bile. From there, the toxins travel with the bile into the intestinal tract. Once that happens, it is important to have normal bowel movements. MeadowPure® (organic stabilized flaxseed complex) is added to Optimal Detox to provide essential fatty acids and support normal bowel function. The alternate routes of excretion include the kidneys via the urine, and through the sweat. Necessary electrolyte minerals including potassium, magnesium, and sodium are all present to support normal hydration during your time of detox. For ALL detox routes, optimal hydration is necessary.

Optimal Detox uses nutrient groups to provide targeted support for the entire liver and GI detoxification system. Glutamine, Quercetin, Aminogen, and MeadowPure® (organic stabilized flaxseed complex) are combined to help support a healthy digestive tract. Ellagic acid, Preventium® (potassium d-glucarate), Watercress, NAC, and sodium sulfate work together to support healthy liver function and normal detoxification pathways. Lastly, curcumin, ginger, bioflavonoids, rutin, and niacinamide provide natural support for the body’s healthy cytokine balance.

How to Enhance Optimal Detox


Consider Pulsing

Dr. Ben Lynch recommends using certain dietary supplements based on your need for them. Start with a partial serving and increase slowly over time to the full serving, only if needed. When you start feeling good, consider reducing the serving size, skipping days, or pausing supplementation. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, chemical exposure, etc.), hence "pulsing." Work with your qualified healthcare practitioner to determine what's best for you.


Pairs Well With

ProBiota HistaminX Powder to support a healthy gut microbiome. Digestion Intensive to support breakdown and digestion of nutrients from your food. Vitamin D3 + K2 Drops as Optimal Detox does not contain these two essential nutrients which support optimal immune health.

The good and the questionable

I decided to try this as I need help with gut detoxing and I can't stomach most powders and this one doesn't bother me and palatable, even though the flavor isn't great . I blend it in a food processor so it's not too powdery. What's frustrating is the lack of direction as far as how long you should take it to detox your gut ... a week? A month? Forever? But it also has a high amount of sugar, which I should have looked into before buying it as I need to cut down on sugar. As luck would have it, the product is being discontinued, so even if it does work wonders for me with just the one container, I won't be able to buy more, which will solve the added-sugar issue.

Seeking Health

Hello Kelly,

Thank you for writing the review. Yes, we are sorry this product is discontinuing. If you like it then we suggest buying a few to get you through the year before we sell out. As far as usage, we would like you to consider following the Pulse Method as outlined in Dr. Ben Lynch’s book ‘Dirty Genes’. This method recommends using a supplement based on your need for it, by tuning in to how you feel each day. Start with a partial dose and increase slowly over time to the full dose only if needed. When you start to feel good, reduce or stop supplementation to prevent taking too much and feeling bad. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, etc), hence “pulsing”.

I hope this helps clarify and that you do get good results with it, while we still carry it.

Please reach out if you have additional questions!
